This site is about the Big Brother 12 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why, who's fun and who's dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

FlashBack - requires Superpass

Episode 1 8/8 11pm Quads
Episode 2 8/9 11.44pm F1/2
Episode 3 8/10 11.10pm F3/4
Episode 4 8/11 11.20pm F1/2
Episode 5 8/20 1:47am F3/4
Episode 6 8/22 11:48pm F1/2

Two hour finale is September 15

Lane opened Pandora's Box which gave him $91.17 and gave them all no cups or utensils, one night of sock puppets, and dancing

Brendon opened Pandora's Box which gave him a night out and let Rachel back for 24 hours.

Matt opened Pandora's Box which held the return of the saboteur (in the form of Ragan) to WREAK HAVOC, and gave him diamond veto for 2 weeks.

Britney opened Pandora's Box and got an hour of BB10/11 Jessie insulting her while the others had a luau

Ragan won $20k for performing 3 tasks a week for 2 weeks undetected. His identity will be revealed to them at the finale.

I use Stabo/Staboteur/Stabotage because of the typo in an early official CBS BB tweet

Annie & Monet were sequestered until Andrew was evicted. Nobody knows why.

The first saboteur was Annie. She'd have won $50k if she lasted 5 weeks undetected.

Ragan's tattoo says 'Quelquefois un rêve est ce qui vous fait un esclave' ('Sometimes a dream is what makes you a slave')

Have-Nots have their own room again, cold showers again, slop again, plus additional food items decided by viewer votes.

Nobody knows why Paolo isn't there.

The winner of BB12 will win $500k and 2nd place gets $50k. Hamsters earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

All feeds stay on one 'scene' when someone's in Diary.

    I still got nothing (Wednesday)

    I tried today to find something noteworthy to write about, but I failed.. I watched the CBS show and heard them all talk about how urgently important everything is now and how hard they have to work, especially Ragan & Hayden, but the feeds were duller than ever, with none of that stuff to be found

    We did get fishies again when they block us instead of bubbles, just like the old days.. Ragan was vertical a few times and even funny again for awhile.. Britney cleaned out mass quantities of rotting food from the pantry, and later feared another BBQ Smackdown event and/or inferno but it fizzled.. mostly they counted down how many days they (and we) have left, and took a lot of naps

    Thankfully, Thursday's almost here again with a new regime and the last HOH room debut, but nominations don't matter much anymore: it's all about the veto now

    Fight! (Tuesday)

    It was yet another day of not much: Ragan talked to himself and laid around, Enzo & Britney each talked to everyone and laid around, and Lane & Hayden are still there

    Someone shouted at Ragan from outside the habitat but it was short.. he finally had his talks with Lane and Enzo, as ordered by Diary.. they later retold to each other and to Hayden, so that's probably going nowhere - just as everyone expected it wouldn't, including Ragan.. he continued his candybar strategizing and studying on his own, and pretty much looked like he's losing his mind

    A flurry of surprising activity broke out and woke us all up when Britney came out of Diary and launched a full-scale pillow assault on Hayden.. Enzo joined in and the three of them had an all-out pillow fight for a few minutes that was fun for them and us

    Sorry, that's all I got, and it still isn't enough to update ratings - the season's done and needs to be put out of its misery.. Diary tried to pump a bit of life into them with a late delivery of Nerf ping pong and Moon Sand, but preschool crafts kits can't save us

    Roots (Monday)

    Britney's are about where Kathy's were going in.. the contrast isn't as strong but you'd think Britney as a feedster would have known to pack some touch-up

    The two Pandora punishments that were fun for them and us - sock puppets and spontaneous dancing - are over, while the boring lack of cups & silverware lingers on, as we enter the dog days of this most dull of BB seasons

    Enzo used his veto OBVI and Lane put up Hayden in his place, according to plan.. they're now officially calling in veto meeting rather than the former POV ceremony, once again taking a tip from me.. it's just a matter of time before BBQ Smackdown© hits the CBS airwaves, at which time I'll be asking for my loyal army of Hamsterwatchers to rise up and rebel.. all's quiet til then

    Hayden's on probation

    So he said today and so I reported it on my Twitter & Facebook, causing a little firestorm and much confusion, so let me reiterate the facts

    No, these were not new offenses, and probation probably isn't new either: I just hadn't heard it said officially before today so I hadn't mentioned it here before this.. I ass-umed today's statement to mean it's official because Hayden said he'd get a penalty vote if he broke anything else - I doubt he'd make up those words if it weren't so

    The items he broke were a few pool cues when he took a (very hard) baseball swing with one of them to their pool trophy stand made from three others, after missing a shot at the end of a pool game - that one can be seen 8/18 9:05pm on F4.. he also broke one of the big backyard vases while standing on it, after trying to flip it like a skateboard - that one can be seen at 8/24 1:17am on F1

    I'm sorry but I can't explain how these events do or don't relate to Enzo's sneaky peanuts, or to Chima's drowned microphone, or anything else about the way Big Brother handles their rules or consequences for breaking them - you can take that up with them

    Thanks to Dogdave for the Flashback times

    Other than that, it was a whole lot of naps and nothing.. Ragan got vertical for a little while and kind of campaigned to Britney for a bit, and he actually spent a little time at the hot tub with the others.. feedmasters kept one feed on the Have-not room shark for most of the evening

    Won: $20,000; Veto ticket
    To follow

    Won: A night in Malibu & massage; shaved head;
    24 15 hrs chum dips chained to Britney
    His showmance with Rachel was the most bizarre we've ever seen since they seemed totally mismatched with zero chemistry, and oddly inexperienced. He was equal parts Ken doll & a boyfriend from 'Pleasantville' and his sensitive side was overwhelmingly sappy. He was a bit better as a solo act but still peculiar as he spewed random out-of-context factoids and 'I have a friend..' stories but he was a good sport about shaving his head & being chained to Britney for green slime dips.

    Won: $1; Diamond Veto
    He pawned himself early but survived that, only to be ousted by the alliance he formed and mentored. His wife's fake illness spread beyond the normally insulated BB world but he brought awareness to melorheostosis (and few care that Dr Will faked cancer ten seasons before). Also like Dr Will, he'll be remembered for duckies strategy sessions, as well as his sparkly falling apart on CBS, footie skull jammies, missing toenails, mysteriously not outing the Brigade, and keeping a hand down his pants.

    Won: Nothing
    She spoiled a lot of early fights by being the peacemaker we didn't need. An early illness laid her low but once she recovered, she didn't bring much to the feeds other than sucking up to whoever was in power. She was the only regular smoker this season, which was an odd juxtaposition with her cancer survival and announced upcoming relapse. She took over fish feeding as well as Hayden's sock monkey, her mascara'd eyelashes had storylines of their own, and she's the first bleached blonde hamster who started off with three weeks' worth of dark roots.

    Won: $5,000; 24 20 hour revival
    The buxom bombshell role and star of the 1st half thanks to her total lack of self-awareness and her adolescent slurpmance with Brendon. She talked up her game but both her HOHs were wasted on non-threats for purely personal reasons. She was chaos, volatility and mood swings deluxe but rarely boring. She'll be remembered for indecipherable blogs, farewells to 4 of 4 who came between her & her man, tacky outfits & tack-on hair, her dysfunctional showmance, and 'I AM VEGAS!'

    Won: $100; 1 week wig & catsuit
    She was barely there the first couple weeks but she came alive and participated in some juicy spats and was the subject of Andrew's scorching exit speech. She was half a showmance with Hayden, wore a silly wig & catsuit for a week, and ate a spider, yet for all this, she still was barely there. She spent most of her time horizontal with Kathy or Hayden, and would only talk with others one-on-one.

    Won: Nothing
    He promised chaos and delivered on that, leaving them and us wondering what he was up to most of the time. He was a good early guess for the staboteur but he WREAKED more HAVOC just by being himself. He was early-to-bed & early-to-rise so I missed a lot of what he did, but he brought some Orthodox education, travel companion/fingerbang stories, and he made lots of threats to make good tv that didn't pan out until his final moments.

    Won: $10,000
    She promised princessy but failed to deliver, opting instead for poor-me tears, complaints about being fat, and a lot of moping around. But she wasn't all doom & gloom: she rode the slip 'n slide and made fun of her keep-warm sleeping layers, and she was Britney's #1 mean girl cohort. She tried out for ANTM and might have fared better there, as they wouldn't have flashed her boobies.

    Won: Nothing
    She turned her nomination into the House of Annie and wheedled everyone for days, to no avail. She promised catfights with Britney and Rachel but nothing came of it, leaving her in the 'Who?' category for future BB trivia, even including her stabotage. She's lucky she went early: she might have cracked bad and the chops would get really brutal.

    Lucky #14 got away before the season began without any secrets exposed or embarrassing incidents to live forever on the web. Her dirty laundry will remain in the hamper, but boobies fans will be forever disappointed and wonder 'what if?'
